Summer Leadership Seminars and Policy Conference @ Courtyard Marriott Carolina Beach
Jun 14 @ 8:00 am – Jun 18 @ 12:30 pm

The 2021 NCSBA Summer Leadership Seminars and Policy Conference is back in person! The dates are June 14-18 at the Courtyard Marriott in Carolina Beach. Take a look at our Policy Conference draft agenda. Details regarding daily programming for the Summer Leadership Seminars is forthcoming.

Your health and well-being are our number one priority. On May 14, Governor Cooper announced that the state will remove its indoor mask mandate for most large group events, effective immediately. Additionally, the state will lift all mass gathering limits and social distancing requirements. In response to this announcement, NCSBA is pleased to expand the Summer Leadership/Policy Conference sessions to a maximum capacity of 90 attendees. With this in mind, the following protocols will be implemented for the daily seminars.

  • The room will be set in crescent rounds of six per table. Participants will not be socially distanced.
  • Unvaccinated participants are strongly encouraged to wear a mask.
  • Vaccinated individuals are encouraged but not required to wear a mask.
  • Hand sanitizer and masks will be available at the registration table.
  • If you start to feel sick or display COVID-19 symptoms, you will not be permitted to attend any conference activities or come within six feet of others. Please remain in your hotel room and notify Angela Hunter, ahunter@ncsba.org, during the Summer Leadership Seminars or Nancy Black,  nblack@ncsba.org, during the Policy Conference.
